The Do328Jet was wearing a second registration (D-BGAB) underneath the
upper paint layer. Another aircraft doing the same trick was the Mount Cook 
ATR-72, of which the registration ZK-MCU was visible through the paint.
Finally, the the ex-Brunei AF Sikorsky S-70C was waering its serial V8-HBV
until February 21nd; the given serial (N50070) was painted on the chopper
from the following day. This Sikorsky was to be returned to Sikorsky and was
about to leave for the USA.
